Unusual weekend getaway..

A new kind of hotel offers couples a quick getaway — from each other. At the Divorce Hotel, unhappily married couples can check out of their marriages with a weekend package that includes lawyers and luxury accommodations — separate, of course.

Couples check into one of six boutique hotels in the Netherlands for the Divorce Hotel package, which typically costs between $2,500 and $10,000 depending on the complexity of the couple’s assets and whether there’s a custody battle.

“We have everything they need: lawyers, mediators, psychologists,” said Halfens. “The marriage failed, and that’s negative. But it’s also a new start, and that’s positive. The only thing we can do is offer a better solution than fighting for years.” Click here for more!

This is in the Netherlands, but there are plans for one in the states in the near future. The owner figures it will be a great service, divorced in 3 days, plus as a business make good $$$,  since 50% of marriages end in divorce.  I find this stat very sad.  :(

What do you think about this type of route for a divorce?
